Loving Prophet [SAW] (Ahadith 927 – 928)


Volume 2, Book 21, Number 228:

Narrated ‘Aisha:

Allah’s Apostle used to give up a good deed, although he loved to do it, for fear that people might act on it and it might be made compulsory for them. The Prophet never prayed the Duha prayer, but I offer it.

This shows how merciful the Prophet (SAW) was and how much he cared for his Ummah. <3

We come to know that Prophet (SAW) did pray Duha once in Umm Hani’s house. Aisha (RA) wasn’t present there, that’s probably why she’s saying ‘the Prophet never prayed the Duha prayer’.

Volume 2, Book 21, Number 229:

Narrated ‘Aisha, the mother of the faithful believers:

One night Allah’s Apostle offered the prayer in the Mosque and the people followed him. The next night he also offered the prayer and too many people gathered. On the third and the fourth nights more people gathered, but Allah’s Apostle did not come out to them. In the morning he said, “I saw what you were doing and nothing but the fear that it (i.e. the prayer) might be enjoined on you, stopped me from coming to you.” And that happened in the month of Ramadan.

Imagine if taraweeh was fard on everyone.. o_O

You know how we say that we don’t feel love for the Prophet (SAW). We don’t know why we should love him and how we’re supposed to love him. And why to such an extent? That he should be more beloved to us than everyone else, even more than our own parents.
Well, it’s because we owe him a lot. He did for us what no parents ever did for their children. He bore for us pain that no one else would willingly endure. He prayed for us more than anyone else, even our own selves. He was our true Muhsin. And that’s why we love him.

Go through the life of the Prophet (SAW), from his childhood to his death. Not once did he think of his own benefit. Every hardship that he went through, every trial that he faced, every loss that he suffered from was all for us. He did it all so we’d be able to practice our Deen with freedom today. He made sure we wouldn’t have to go through hardships, so he took it all upon himself.

Just think about it. Any pain that he experienced, he felt it x2. Whether it was a simple headache or the extreme pain of naza` (during death), he endured twice the pain. :(

And we say we can’t love the Prophet (SAW) that much..
